I am the first to admit that I am not big into sharpening at this time.
I do want to say though that to begin with when I get any new or used tool that has a sharp edge that I can resharpen I do.
I don’t profess to being able to pull 9 micron shavings, but I can use my planes on end grain walnut or maple and not take sawdust but real shavings.

I use the Scary sharp method but only go to 1500g wet/dry sand paper and then use a piece of brown paper bag as the last step.
